Since the takeover of the Volvo Cars by a Chinese company that goes by the name Geely, Volvo has been doing better than ever before in the past 20 years. Volvo has recently launched the Volvo XC40, which everyone is saying is the coolest car Volvo ever produced. What do you think is the reason behind Volvo doing so well? Is it the takeover of the company by a Chinese company Geely or something else?
If you ask me, I will say that Geely is responsible for all the positive changes for the Volvo. They were building the Volvos in Sweden before but now they are building all the Volvos in China itself except the S60. Republic of China’s Aluminium die casting is popular all over the world and China is not just limited to that anymore. Many of the automotive products are built using die casting technology nowadays and China is unparalleled when it comes to the die casting technology.
Yes, we will miss the made in Sweden build quality on the new Volvo, but do you think it was worth it? Would you let your favorite car maker go extinct just because of that? Volvo is my personal favorite car maker and I will continue supporting that they be made in China if they want to be on par with the Mercedes, BMW, Audi and Jaguar.
